Ace golfer Vani Kapoor had a highly eventful day as she kept marginal lead in the second round of the inaugural edition of the 2018 Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour at the Kalhaar Blues and Greens here on Wednesday.
Four time winner with six starts in the last season Vani’s very successful record in the past tours will definitely help her move forward this season. Today, she is leading the field at five over 149. One shot behind her is Neha (71) and Saaniya Sharma (73) who are six over 150. Neha and Saaniya shared second position.
On third position is Smriti Mehra who might quickly close in on Neha and Saaniya. The final will be interesting as the top four players on the leaderboard are separated by two shots only. In finals Vani is in the last group alongside Neha and Saaniya. Smriti will go in the penultimate group with Gursimar Badwal and Tvesa Malik.
Tvesa Malik (75) and Gursimar Badwal (77) are tied fifth at 9-over 153 while Afshan Fatima (74) and Amandeep Drall (76), who shot in the 80s on the first day, are now tied-seventh at 12-over 156.
It’s a close call for final round as the game can change. For the first leg of the 2018 Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour at Kalhaar Blues and Greens, a prize of INR. 6,00,000 is at stake.
2018 Hero Women’s Pro Golf Tour will be hosted by many cities like Mumbai, Pune, Greater Noida and Gurugram over the course of next three months.
